Why You Should Recycle Scrap Metal
Recycling one aluminum can of soda will save enough energy to run a single light bulb for nearly a whole day. That means recycling a 6 pack of cans can give you light for nearly a week. Whoever said that recycling metal was a bright idea; they were right.
Recycling metal conserves natural resources, as well as reduces the emissions of dangerous greenhouse gasses. Less energy is used recycling metals than the energy needed to produce metals from virgin ore.
The reduction of scrap metal dumping and the increase in scrap metal recycling can help the environment and decrease the risk of environmental issues.
According to the EPA, the amount of energy that is saved from recycling metals compared to the production of virgin or is up to:
- 95 % for aluminum
- 60 % for steel
